A Nite at the Dew Drop Inn
The weather was Sunny until the rain cam. I wore A long dress and flip flops.
I wore Dress like you are going to the Circus. I wore blue jeans and a shirt with casual shoes..
street parking-can be limited if you want to be close to theater so arrive early
The weather was cool, evening & comfortable. I wore nice jeans & classy/casual top & carried a sweater.
The weather was cold and rainy. I wore Cuteness... a skirt and a fab coat that was complimented by The Director!!! :D So, go looking good!.
Anacostia Metro is about half a mile. The 90 bus runs from Adams Morgan and drops you within 1.5 blocks. Be careful crossing MLK Blvd or Howard -- way too many speeding drivers along those streets and they do not stop and give right of way to people walking in crosswalks.
There are a lot of great restaurants over by the Navy Yard on 8th street and it is only a 5 minute drive to the theater.
